One of the most important interviews ever conducted.
Norman Dodd began his career in banks. Soon he discovered an insidious virus infecting the banking system. He wanted to resign, but instead he was quickly promoted to a lofty position - with the sole intention of keeping his mouth shut.
This was the beginning.
Mr. Dodd was blacklisted within banking, but had an opportunity later as Director of Research to discover "unammerican" (meaning unconstitutional) activities alleged against certain organizations within the US, masquerading as charities. What he discovered there was even more shocking than his experince in banking. Large "endowments" (many of them started by robber baron families) under the guise of "tax exempt foundations" had been spending over 40 years trying to reorient education in America AWAY from individualism and the US Constitution! With a stratling revelation from Rowan Gaither in an interview, Dodd was told that these foundations made a determination long ago that they must get control over education in the US. Gaither pointed to long parallel experience of these foundations with the OSS (later the CIA) after WW-1 and operated with White House directives also.
The substance of this was to use grant power of the foundations to alter life in the United States - for the purpose of later merging the US 'comfortably' with the Soviet Union. Gather added, (but) we will not tell the people of the US any such thing.
Dodd appointed Catherine Casey to examine minutes of the meeting of major foundations. There, it was discovered that the prime purpose of the foundations discussed (1908 to 1909, before the first world war) was to seek a means of altering life in the US - and that no better way was possible to do this than dragging the US into wars.
For this purpose, they sought to control the diplomatic apparatus of the US. "We must control the State department." "We must control the diplomatic machinery of this country."
After deceiving the US into entering WW-1, the same foundations repurposed themselves to "preventing a reversion of life in the US to what it was before 1914" [that is, to before the war altered the US]. For this, the Rockefeller foundation was given the task of taking over the educational system, and the rewriting US history.
The Guggenheim foundation was put in charge of developing a stable of 20 history teachers to oversee and promote their version of US history. These 20 were sent to London to be "briefed" on what exactly was expected from them in their mission.
The "American Historical Association" (a puppet group of the above) was granted $400,000 for a "study" as to what the view should be toward the future. The result: 7 volumes concluding that "the future of this country [the USA] belongs to collectivism administered with characteristic American efficiency." In other words, the intention was to convert the US into a collectivistic hive dominated (of course) by the ruling globalist elite oligarch families - the ones who 'charitably' paid for the 'study'.
Eventually the Congressional committee divulging this information was stopped, and the dictaphone belts (tapes) of the foundation meeting minutes obtained by Catherine Casey disappeared into the US archives.
However, now one can see how the US got to where it is today - the very same foundations, corporations and oligarch families having backed the uber-collectivist regime of Barack Obama.
